Great day at The Photography Show 2014, mainly due to two great talks from Steve McCurry and Joe McNally (for more details see my cross-post here). I think the show's organisers are to be congratulated for offering speakers of this standard and for allowing pre-booking rather than first-come-first-served.
Overall the show seemed slightly smaller but no less busy than it was in it's former incarnation as Focus On Imaging. I also got the feeling that there were fewer deals to be had. Although, to be fair, the day for deals is usually the last one as no one wants to re-pack stock at the end of a long hard show.
That said, I did pick up some software (more of what and why shortly) at about a third off, although online retailers are also offering this pricing.
